    Just wondering if Jack Purcells stretch out at all. The ones I have are snug, but my toe does not touch the end. They are a little uncomfortable in that they squeeze my toes, I would think they would not stretch out much because of all the rubber at the toe. Am I right?

    I wear a 9 in chucks and so I got a 9 in Purcells. But I will need to get a 9.5 in Purcells next time.

    Depends, usually between a 9 and 10. But since Chucks and JP are made by converse, I thought they'd be the same.

    I tried on Chucks and they simply did not work at all for me. I normally wear an 11 but 11 in chucks was too tight around my toes. A half size up and I felt like I was wearing clown shoes. Simply too long. I blindly ordered size 11 purcells and they fit me perfectly. Go figure.

    im sort of having the same problem, but its only on my left foot and its bearable unless i wear the chucks more than a few days in a row... but after that i feel a dull numb-like pain in my left-most toes on my left foot.

    I have a pair of Chucks that have stretched out..it's a size 8 (my other chucks are 9s)...though I do deadlift and squat in them, so maybe that's why.

    my purcells = 10

    I actually have a full size larger purcell than chucks(12-11) 12 being my normal sneaker size for vans, nike and such. I couldn´t fit in any smaller purcell. Chucks in 11 is a tad small, but since they are so soft it works anyway.
